Drop down menu-tutorial: how to position a dropdown menu in webpage?
To make your webpage look nice, you need to put the menu in exact position. Before doing that, firstly you should create a menu with some menu editor. (We take Sothink DHTML Menu for example in this drop down menu-tutorial.)
The following drop down menu-tutorial is about positioning a menu in webpage by Table. Here we use Dreamweaver. Let’s check the drop down menu-tutorial below:

Then, insert an image in the right cell.
Drop Down menu-tutorial —— Step Four: Open Your Menu
I want to put the menu in the left cell, so put the cursor in the left cell, go to the menu bar in Dreamweaver and click Sothink > DHTMLMenu, then save the page and open an existing PGT file (the project file of Sothink DHTMLMenu) of your menu. (Here you will see a DHTMLMenu widget is listed in Dreamweaver. It is a great feature of Sothink DHTML Menu, so please install the widget during the installation of the program.)
Set the menu’s height as the same with blue area’s to make the image and menu match well.
